I heard the movie The Strangers, which hits theaters May 30th, is based on these murders. Is this true??

I think it's a combination of true stories; at least that's what I read.

If it's based, I think it's very loosely based, the story, characters, and setting are much different from this murder (except for the fact they are in a cabin) from the previews I've seen.

It could definitely be based off the idea that people could come into a house and commit violent acts for seemingly no reason though. But no one is for sure that's even what happened in this crime. Then again, that idea could be based off of thousands of crimes.

From what I've read though people seem to be saying it's either based off of this crime or the Manson murders.

I've been reading as much as I can about this mostly because I'm on bed rest and bored out of my mind, but it gives me a lot of time to look things up. I can't say for 100% sure on anything since I have nothing to do with the movie but it seems to me they've taken aspects of many different home invasion stories and combined them with make believe as hollywood does. The isolated cabin resembles the Keddie murders, there are some similarities the the Manson/Sharon Tate murders among others. Just something to think about.

I believe it has very little to do with the Keddie Murders.

The only similarity I see (of course haven't seen the movie) is the cabin scenario and the whole home invasion slant of it.

That's about it really. Hollywood knows if it links it, no matter how thinly to real events it may bring more people in. At this point I don't know if it's good or bad for this case.

I think it will bring it out in the light a bit more. If it weren't for the movie I would have never known what happened. Not that me knowing does any good but maybe the more people that know the better chance of finding something out. Of course the people involved may not feel the same way. Again though the resemblance between the murders and the movie is very very slim.

The connection is very tenuous as has been stated above....I don't think the filmmakers have acknowledged it either.

No they haven't and like I said earlier the only similarity I see (of course haven't seen the film) is the cabin aspect of it and the home invasion aspect. You can see similarities to the Sharon Tate murder as well as some others.

In the production notes for "The Strangers," the film's writer-director Bryan Bertino explains just what "true events" the film is based on:

"That part of the story came to me from a childhood memory. As a kid, I lived in a house on a street in the middle of nowhere. One night, while our parents were out, somebody knocked on the front door and my little sister answered it. At the door were some people asking for somebody that didn't live there. We later found out that these people were knocking on doors in the area and, if no one was home, breaking into the houses. In 'The Strangers,' the fact that someone is at home does not deter the people who've knocked on the front door; it's the reverse."

So the "true" event is a decades-old childhood memory of an almost-burglary that didn't actually happen?

That sounds much more similar to the plot of the movie than this case.

Thanks for sharing that find for us Ragtown.

The reason so many flooded this board in May is because someone edited the Wikipedia page for The Strangers to include the Keddie murders around May 15. The first edit mentioned all three victims names and that the Keddie Resort was a hotspot for movie stars and actors. The second and third edits from this same person added the cabin28 link and a few more details of the crime. It was the day after the link was added that this board had its most traffic. Obviously, not a big surprise. The link to Keddie has since been taken off the wiki site. That's why this board was attracting so much attention, but has slowed down a bit now. There are still a few very obscure sites/chatboards linking the two, but there shouldn't be so many casual passerbys anymore. Just thought you would want to know.

That events in that movie are precisely why I don't answer the door (even though in the trailer it shows them hacking through the door, but I'm armed . . . ). I generally don't answer the phone, either. If someone came to my door, they would pretty much just be stuck standing around out there. If someone wants to see me, they'd better call first . . . and hope I recognize their number, lol.

Hi Smile

I was watching a commercial for the new "Strangers" movie and noticed it clamed to be based on a real incident so I searched online and found out about the Keddie Cabin murders.
Maybe this has been discussed here before (I haven't scrolled thru all of your posts/topics) but has anyone ever tried to have a psychic medium or a remote viewer look into the case? I used to watch a program called "Haunted Evidence" and there was a really good psychic on there named John J. Oliver. His readings (at least the final, edited ones) were very accurate according to family, friends, and law enforcement.
Anyway, just thought I'd suggest it as I think it was such a horrible crime and for it to still be unsolved is just baffling.

I don't care what or who it's based on; I will see it anyway. It will give me nightmares for about a month or so, but that's o.k. Can't be any worse than the Rodney Dangerfield dream I had over and over where he was chasing me on a motorcycle after I saw Caddy Shack. I am hopeless.

Perhaps one of you people who 'know things' should take proper action and go to the Wiki entry for The Strangers and remove the information saying the film is based on the Keddie case eh? It would remove a lot of unwanted traffic for you. Since it's clear you don't want any outsiders here, I'd think it was in your best interest to remove the link to the 'cabin 28' page.

For surely no one who didn't want the traffic nor the connection that started all the 'hoax' stuff in the first place to remain, correct?

In the discussion page there someone from here apparently thought it was a good idea to link to this page. Hmmm...why would people who don't want the people who ask questions to visit their page?

Unless of course there was a possibility that the page in question was piggybacking off the untrue story that The Strangers is based on the Keddie Murders for some twisted reason. Of course since we see some twisted individuals heading up the 'smack talk' are the alleged 'in the know' folks around here, that wouldn't be an unreasonable assumption due to your insistant and unrelenting belligerant behaviour.

You can't have it both ways. You can't have people not questioning it if you let that stand, yet you don't want people questioning it. So if you really want to stop the hoax rumor, then remove unproven information from the page(that the film is based on the Keddie Murders).

Simple. No connection to the Keddie murders, and less people asking questions that allegedly hurt your feelings.

Here I'll get ya started. You can even do it anonymously!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Strangers

All you need to do is remove the reference to the Keddie crimes and the link and..poof....no more hoax questions.

Just spitballing Wink .

You are the only outsider who has come in "smacktalking" I dont see anyone else past or present having such a problem as you Mr. Know-it-all. It really doesnt matter Alex what you think. You are someone who is coming along 27 yrs later and ranting its a hoax throwing insults and riling everything up. Other than that its people on here who know each other or know something who have personal disagreements... and the rest who are trying to compile ideas. In the 20-30 posts you have made. you have said not ONE intelligent thing, informative thing, or nice thing to anyone. NOW GO AWAY. Considering the way you have presented yourself here I think I can speak for everyone here when i say " No one wants you or your help, get lost."

No guest I won't go away (gee I wonder what regular is acting as a guest). I don't think the page will be much use to me because of the constant misinformation and out of context smack talk from people like you who have the nerve to question my intelligence. But I'll keep peeking in. There's always a shot people can become reasonable I suppose.

I see my suggestion about changing the wiki page got taken up within minutes. It now reads that the case is based on the Manson crimes and an incident from someone's past. Gee...what a coincidence that that changed within minutes of me making the suggestion:

"This page was last modified on 27 May 2008, at 18:12." Just minutes...lol. Guess I'm not so useless after all Rolling Eyes .

There ya go for your investigative skills. Im not regular. I am just as new. I just found you to be insulting and rude especially about something such as murder. Its not something to take lightly even if you question inside your mind. I just thought you were out of line from all the posts Ive seen you write thats all. I would never disrespect the dead. If it were a hoax, then it still wouldnt matter if I were wrong in beleiving it happened. I think coming from Europe... murders are few and far between compared to America and to see someone criticize it... its just plain wrong. If its a hoax then that would also be sick. I choose to beleive its real. It just pisses me off seeing you come in and disrespect anyone whether they are here or not. Its like going into a graveyard and digging up someones plot. Its WRONG!

Xlax, since you folks seem to think you're so well versed in investigation , you may want to look up the definition of what is argument and what is a statement. I don't believe that I've engaged in argument with anyone unreasonable since I found out (on my own) that the crimes were indeed real. And admitted I was wrong and apologized.
